Glen Veterinary Clinic on the Bansha Road in Tipperary Town has announced the appointment of a new vet, Míchéal Bourke, to their team.

Míchéal is a graduate of veterinary medicine from UCD, Dublin.

He was brought up on a suckler farm in Kilmallock, Limerick and has a keen interest in both farm and companion animals.

From an early age he always had a keen interest in animals and helping out on the farm at home. In transition year in secondary school, he spent two weeks on work experience with a local vet at home and really fell in love with the profession.

This had a massive influence on Míchéal and he decided to put veterinary first on his CAO and studied hard to get the points to enrol in veterinary medicine in UCD.

Míchéal enjoys caring for all animals and has two dogs at home, a Labrador called Nala and a Siberian Husky called Ollie who are the best of friends!

Míchéal’s hobbies revolve around sport, mainly hurling and tennis.

He was a member of the Limerick minor hurling team in 2015 and 2016 and currently plays senior hurling with his local club, Garryspillane, and tennis with the local tennis club in Hospital.
